Volunteer Sexual Assault Advocacy Program
Becoming a volunteer Sexual Assault Advocate is an experience that offers life-long rewards. It requires larger commitment but is an opportunity for volunteer advocates to provide direct service to people in crisis. A wonderful option for many, sexual assault advocacy digs to the heart of the matter and offers a chance to be there for people in need.
PAVSA has a big need for volunteers who are interested in spending time at our office helping with administrative tasks. Work includes data entry, brochure design, mass mailings, and more, and is a great way to get involved more casually. In addition, office volunteers gain exposure to career opportunities in counseling and social services, and to the nonprofit environment.
Volunteer to help out at an Event
Throughout the year PAVSA hosts and co-hosts a variety of awareness events and fundraisers. Volunteers play a critical role in the success of these events, as they provide the muscle to much of the event planning process! If you.re interested in helping us prepare for these events and/or interested in volunteering the day-of, please feel free to contact us immediately.
Volunteer Childcare Providers
Another rewarding way to volunteer PAVSA on a casual basis is to become a volunteer childcare provider. This is a wonderful option for those who love working with kids. Volunteer childcare providers receive a two-hour training and CPR Certification, and are then added to a list of volunteer childcare providers.
